Default Another teacher-based idea...

Hi Bret,

Here's another idea...

First, there are people (as you know) who tutor for a living, to help students get better grades.

Of course, you could do the tutoring yourself.

However, you can also do this as a slightly larger business. How?

If you know how to get tutoring jobs, then you could do the following. You get the customers (i.e. students who want tutoring, or the parents of students are your real customers in many cases), then hire others to actually do the tutoring, and take a small percentage of the money for each tutoring job that you get for your tutors.

Getting the customers might require spending a little bit of money on advertising.

I know people who have done this as a business in the past.

Best wishes,

Dien
